AbstractA new mixed finite element formulation very well adapted to analyze the propagation of elastic and acoustic waves in porous absorbing media is presented. The proposed new formulation is based on modified Biot's equations written in terms of the skeleton displacement and the acoustic pressure in the interstitial fluid. It generalizes the previous formulation proposed by Professor Atalla & Co-authors, and has the great advantage over existing formulations of automatically satisfying all boundary conditions without having to compute surface coupling integrals at porous sub-domain interfaces. When elastic forces in the skeleton are neglected, the formulation automatically degenerates to an equivalent fluid model taking into account inertial coupling with the skeleton. This generalized mixed formulation and associated equivalent fluid model has been implemented by STRACO (France) in RAYON-PEM Solver. It is shown in this paper, that the numerical results predicted with RAYON-PEM agrees very well with experimental results using impedance tube tests and vibration measurements on multi-layered plates.
